at the university of colorado law school. she talked about gender discrimination cases and her own experiences as a woman law school graduate in the early 1960s. this conversation is about an hour, 15 minutes. .. >> we are so grateful to have you here, phil, for all your work. [applause] >> we have several regions here, two of whom are grads of our fine law school, michael and jodi your and irene is here also i believe. and any other regions are here, we thank you for all your support and your spirit. we do very much believe in engaging with the community come and we want to continue to do so in so many ways. i would echo what melissa hart said, and very importantly acknowledge the leadership in terms of the energy she brought to the white center, this lecture was her brainchild. the constitution of the activities were brainchild, and recognizing that under the board of regents, the chase award given from the president's office given to melissa hard for her work in community service. so i want to acknowledge mullah so hard. [applause] -- melissa hart. >> and finally, all of you make such a dif
of goes to at what's at the heart of constitutionalism and rule of law, and looking back at the list of things that you listed. in the course of that conversation after a long discussion about the constitutionalism, a center. essentially blackmun turns to moyers and says it's really the preamble that breathes life into the constitution. and i wondered whether that's a point of view that you hold and whether you think it has relevance in the situation we're talking about now. >> , preamble, we the people and united states, et cetera, i used to be able to quote it, i don't think i can now. anyway, it's written down. and the preamble is important saying we the people. but is not the only thing. and i say that because i do think, i had a very interesting conversation in china, i thought. i've gone there twice. the first time was a few years ago, maybe eight or 10, when we went to beijing and then we went to shanghai. and in shanghai we are asked to meet with a group of businessm businessmen, and these businessmen have all been involved in the.com. they lost a lot of money. most of them h
in advance what the tax laws are and rates will be. we cannot long tolerate a government that puts together scotch tape deals in the last minute and literally the last minute so two days ago people didn't know the taxes rates today. that's from a neutral point of view. from a partisan point of view if you permit me, it's a total -- the republicans didn't gain anything from the deal giving the president everything he wanted. they don't stand for any small government, lower taxes, stop the borrowing values. they have opportunities to redeem themselves, like, with the debt ceiling, but they're behavior -- charles: judge, i think what republicans say, is we lost the public relations battle. maybe the country has to see what the end results of what these policies are. we can't warn because they don't believe us. live through it, maybe it takes a couple years of the free willing spending, $20 trillion in debt to somehow trigger a grand epiphany. that could be the only way. %-program, we played greek musi, tongue-in-cheek, but kind of serious. cue the music. by the way, it is the song played on a
vote on something then. the senate could also pass it and signed into law. gregg: right. >> everyone is talking about there is not enough time. this is not true. congress can do whatever it wants. if they agree, the two parties agree congress can pass things very quickly the trick is getting both sides to agree. gregg: it is always small ball and it is never really significant. which shows an utter lack of courage. and the american people, you know, feel that way too about their representatives. put up on the "gallup poll." "gallup poll", likelihood of averting the fiscal cliff. there you see, susan, people are losing faith. i'm actually surprised that they haven't lost all faith. >> actually i was going to say the same thing. i think that number is pretty surprising. i would think it is much higher at this point. perhaps the public is getting used to this kind of game they play chicken and at the last second they come up with a deal. remember august 2011, we thought the nation was running out of money, we would hit the debt ceiling, government would partially shut down, literally at

you. >> bret: you heard the phrase "fiscal cliff." then bill and law accompany the overused phrase fiscal cliff. some out the it as win, politically for taxpayers. the reality, according to both sides is really more of a mixed bag. president obama -- >> president obama campaigned on strengthening middle class. >> nonpartisan tax policy center estimate 77% of the american households wind l end up paying higher federal taxes because the 2% payroll tax holiday is not part of the package. impacts every worker. even before the revelation, the legislation was unpopular with the house republicans and the speaker did not make the final pitch. that was left to the house ways and means chairman. >> making the tax cut permanent we are one step closer to comprehensive tax reform to strengthen the economy and create more and higher paycheck for american workers. >> many conservatives didn't like the package because it includes $6 # 0 billion in new tax hike with $15 billion in spending cuts. so the key to pass it was $172 of the votes in favor from the houseteam delivered by whip steny hoyer. >
the bills that they've already wracked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat, we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be catastrophic, far worse than the impact of a fiscal cliff. people will remember back in 2011 the last time this course of action was threatened, our entire recovery was put at risk, consumer confidence plunged, business investment plunged, the growth dropped. we can't go down that path again. >> while the president says that he won't negotiate, there is another battle brewing in washington, it's been tweeted the gop and its far right tea party members, republicans breaking ranks with their house majority leader eric cantor to vote for a plan, 85 house republicans voted for the deal, 151 republicans voted against the deal, including cantor, and that didn't sit well with the tea party. amy kremer tweeted this "i'm extremely disgusted with what happened in the house tonight. there will be consequences."

and increase the nation's debt. didn't work out exactly as planned. the bottom line, this law will provide 620 billion dollars in new tax hikes. and 15 billion in budget cuts. and for those of you keeping track at home. for every $1 in cut, according to the so-called debt deal adds nearly 4 trillion dollars to federal deficits over the next decade largely because of the extension of lower tax rates for almost all americans. 330 billion dollars of it is also an increase in spending, an increase in spending, more, more spending. plus, congress packed in some special gifts for the railroads, the car racing business, and some friends in hollywood who have some deep pockets. chris is our host of power play on foxnews.com live. happy new year! >> happy new year to you, merry cliff-mass. >> megyn: we went off the cliff and we're kind of off it, but moved the cliff and the cliff is in a weird place. postponed part of it. in any event, there's big tax hikes for the rich and hikes for everyone, 77% of americans. and there's more spending, there's 4 trillion more going into the deficit. i mean, i don't k
its attention to renewing a controversial surveillance law. they spent hours on this yesterday. some people say it violates the rights of americans. we'll look at the pros and the cons. stay with us. harris: new information about the u.s. soldier accused of killing 16 afghan villagers in a predawn rampage. the u.s. army is now saying it will seek the death penalty against staff sergeant robert bales. he faces premeditated murder and other charges in the attack on the villages that left 16 people dead among them women and children in southern afghanistan. that happened back in march. the attack drew such angry protests in the country the u.s. temporarily halted combat operations there. bales says attorney says his client should not serve the death penalty because he was serving the fourth deployment in a war zone. he is serving in fort lewis mccord in washington state. let's talk with a former prosecutor. >> thanks for having me. harris: let's start with what the defense team is saying. multiple deployments are a defense. why? >> they're saying because of multiple deployments there wa
meaningful oversight. beyond the straightforward application of the law to specific and sometimes highly classified circumstances, fisa court rulings may include substantive interpretations of governing legal authorities. as is true in every court called on a construed statutory text, fisa applications are influential in determining the contours of the government' surveillance authorities. unlike specific collections which are properly classified in many instances, i believe that the fisa court's substantive legal interpretation of statutory authorities should be made public. a hallmark of the rule of law which is a bedrock principle upon which our nation is founded, mr. president, is that the requirements of law must be made publicly available, available for review, available for the scrutiny of the average american. the merkley-lee amendment establishes a cautious and reasonable process for declassification consistent with the rule of law. its procedures are limited in three key respects: first, the pathway for declassification applies only to the most important decisions that include
's for it to be approved and signed into law. today's the 27th. the senate comes back in session today, the house is in pro-forma so it probably will not do any work. you only have a few days left for lawmakers to make a deal -- ink a deal. the president took off last night from hawaii, but there's a five-hour time difference. time is working against these lawmakers. they will have to figure out something if they want to do anything before new year's. it seems quite likely that we are going to go over this cliff and that whatever happens is going to have to be resolved after january 1. it has been looking like that before the holiday, but certainly now, particularly if you remember for congress broke for the christmas break, speaker raynor was not able to get the backup plan through his caucus, so there was no pressure on democrats to try to counter that immediately. senate democrats saying we passed a bill that raises tax rates on incomes over $250,000, we ran on this and this is what we are offering. house republicans were saying, no, we want to negotiate something, figure it out and send it to us. someo
americans from adopting russia children. i can't believe this happening in retaliation law for cracking down on russia human rights vialators. >> these children are not available to international adoption until after they have been on a domestic registry for eight months n our son's case, 22 families, russia families came to see him and rejected him because of his blood line. >> julia: this woman was on o'rielly and laura ingraham was hosted it . she had adopted two russian children. she doesn't know if they will see the boy. they have gone over there constantly to get close to the little boy. more than 60,000 russian children have been taken in by americans in the past two decades. massive winter storm that killed 16 people so far continues to move over the northeast. it is expected to head into canada today as many travelers are trying to get home after christmas. they had flights cancelled all over the place and delaying 8000 more. many northwest states saw a foot of snow . in vermont, 21 inches. hard-hit arkansas, 200,000 homes and businesses lost power. the bush family said, put away th
is considered a payback of sorts for an american law that was passed two weeks ago. that law puts financial restrictions on russians accused of human rights violations, bans them from also traveling to the united states. i want to bring in our matthew chance from london. and matthew, of course, you were a correspondent in moscow for a very long time here. it seems at least there's a split. you've got russia's foreign minister who actually criticized putin before he signed this ban. so what is going on here? is this a power play? and is this something that is actually going to take effect? >> i mean, you're right. there has been a very rare split in the russian political elite about this issue. there's been some criticism that was leaked to the press in russia about how some officials including the foreign minister concerned about what the impact this may have. also an opposition newspaper in russia has issued a petition, saying the law should not been enacted. that's had more than 100,000 signatures. obviously, it's something that divides russian society. but make no mistake, it is a power
. wyatt andrews now with that. >> reporter: the fiscal cliff law passed so quickly many in congress never realized it was full of special interest tax breaks, one of which allows auto racetrack owners to speed up their tax deductions. another tax writeoff goes to hollywood, a $20 million break any time a t.v. show or movie is shot in an economically depressed area of the united states. there's a subsidy for rum made in puerto rico. a tax break if you train a mine rescue worker, and a tax credit for every kilowatt of electricity produced by the wind. all told, a fiscal cliff law designed to reduce the deficit added $74 billion in spending through changes in the tax law. do you consider this pork? >> oh, absolutely. this was filled with pork. >> reporter: republican congressman darrell issa, who voted no on the bill, says many house members felt blindsided by tax breaks that were never publicly debated. >> and it's pork particularly because they couldn't get these through any other way except by throwing them into a bill like this. >> reporter: but supporters of the tax provision say they w
that they have already racked up through the laws they passed. we can't not pay bills we have already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be cat stenographic, far worse than the impact of a fiscal cliff. >>> let's bring in brianna keilar. a lot of people are talking about winners and losers, but c'mon, i feel like we're all losers in this, considering we didn't get a deal, we just got a patch. >> reporter: that is true. i don't think it's ever really healthy for americans when you're kind of going through this process every year, whether it's the a.m.t. fix or tax cuts, so i think the fact that those tax cuts were permanently extended actually is a good thing, because it is difficult when they aren't, but yeah, i think that you look at especially now the environment of things as this is a congress that the president wants to undertake other issues like immigration reform and gun violence, and you can see how it even maybe has a pleefover effect as they try to get their bu
with earnings over $400,000. all that remains is for the president to sign the bill into law. so we begin the year with a harmonious congressional kumbaya, right? >> the conduct of the republican leadership was disgrateful, indefensible, and immoral. we cannot believe that this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> oh, dear. that was republican congressman peter king of new york. and the cruel knife to which he's referring, that could be a failure to vote on a relief package for superstorm sandy. the vote was abruptly pulled back by speaker boehner last night delaying the bill until the 113th congress which convenes tomorrow. gop leadership apparently determined the house shouldn't even try for $60.4 billion in new spending on a night it added $4 trillion to the deficit. and congressman king is not the only one outraged that politics took precedence over people. >> republicans in congress brought this house to a new low last night. >> we're all hit hard enough with the recession. on top of that now we have to deal with the anxiety and the failure of congress to act. >> t

federal law because the federal law i think prohibits gambling on sports in several states other than nevada and three others which were grandfathered in. very simplest form the new jersey case seems as well if you allowed it in four states, why not just allow it everywhere? >> i think that is exactly right. that's the argument. why should the federal government ban something in new jersey that's allowed in nevada. adam: right. >> it is illogical. adam: along comes the nfl, the nba, different sports leagues and they say no, no, no. you can't allow betting on our games in it was the nba in new jersey. that will give perception the games are fixed and we're not up and up kinds of people, right? and the judge agreed? >> i think the judge came to the conclusion somehow it would harm the leagues. i don't think anyone thinks it is necessarily means it is fixed. what everyone wants, everyone bets illegally other than in navy. adam: not here. people to do this all the time. >> estimate 300 to $500 million is bet illegally in the u.s. if you took 5% of that, that means there are $150 million g

be signed into law because the senate would not do that bill. in so doing, they took up valuable time from other legislative priorities and cbs news reports that these votes to consistently always trying to repeal health care, those votes, mr. speaker, cost the american taxpayer almost $50 million. for over a year and a half and unproductive governing failed to provide solutions to the american people and coming out of the november elections, our mandate was clear. the american people demanded an end to the political theater and the dangerous legislative games. they demanded that we finally get to work and solve the looming fiscal cliff in a balanced, responsible and bipartisan way. in the middle of last july all other members sent a letter to the speaker asking that we begin in july to find a solution to the fiscal cliff and sequestration. we call for a bipartisan approach and something we could get finished before the august recess so that we could spare the americans and other people in the world and financial markets the worry that we have put them through. we got our answer tonight. s
and is what president obama will sign into law. >> that's what will remain in place as long as i am pthd. everyone pays their fair share. everyone does their part. >> everyone pays their fair share. and everyone does their part. that's what president obama won in this deal for the country. first, he forced republicans to raise taxes on those earning more than $400,000 a year. he also extended unemployment benefits to 2 million americans who are out of work. people who desperately need help now. and he extended the stimulus tax break for working hch cla ingwos all across the country. the president did this without cuts in our safety net. the deal delays the automatic spending cuts for the start of the year and it doesn't include a single dime in cuts to medicare, medicaid or social security. republicans who know who won this debate have expressed it. just listen to this. >> we all knew the ptresident ws going to get his way. he wins. >> this is a complete surrender on everything. it's a complete route by the democrats. >> the last time a republican voted to raise taxes, george bush was pr

that they have already racked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we have already incurred. >> reporter: that in turn drew this response from conservative republican marsha blackburn speaking on fox news this morning. >> i was very disappointed in his demeanor and comments that he made last night wanting no fight over the debt ceiling, are you kidding me? >> reporter: all of this, an indication of the fight we can expect in the coming weeks, jenna. jenna: a lot of dynamics at play. colorful language, doug reflecting some of those high emotions. talk to a little bit about speaker boehner and the way forward for him. what are you hearing about him maintaining his leadership role and why is that a topic of conversation now? >> reporter: well, it's a topic of discussion right now in part because notice how eric cantor, the house majority leader voted on the fiscal cliff deal last night. he voted against it. some have interpreted that to be premonition, an indication perhaps there will be some sort of a challenge to the speakership of john boehner. however

to the health care law is of course a tea party favorite and a favorite of social conservatives, but money and the backing of the clintons didn't do the trick for mccullough last time around. key question this time, which flawed candidate wins this race or supposedly flawed candidate? mccullough is hoping to break this curse. since 1976, the party that wins the presidency loses the state's gubernatorial election the next year. it's never wavered. 20 2001, after bush was elected, mark warner, he defeated a republican. 52% of the vote. in 2005, after bush's election, tim kaine beat jerry kilgore by six points. bob mcdonnell won in obama's first year in office. it would turn out to be 40%. the electorate likely to be a little whiter, older, more conservative than it was in virginia. will it be conservative enough to elect ken kutch anele. speaking of the campaign, if you're thinking of working on hillary's presidential campaign, you're supposed to send your resumf to terry mccullough. in new jersey, where the governor's race is all about one man, chris christie and 2016. he hopes to scare off
